It's the first weekend after For Honor's release and already players have found the best ways to annoy and kill me in the midst of battle. However, some players have shown that they have skill outside of the fighting, too. The game's emblem designer lets you create a symbol that you can apply to the various characters' armour, shields, and weapons, and it's proven to be quite the versatile tool.
Some players have shown such a talent for creating eye-catching symbols that it's brought me back to the early days of the first Call of Duty: Black Ops and its own insignia-designing tool. And so, I've collected some of the best designs from the For Honor and For Honor Emblems subreddits and compiled them below. Enjoy.
The first one I want to highlight is actually a combo of four. Reddit user XiroNyne (opens in new tab) created four awesome looking emblems based on comic book characters Spawn, Iron Man, Deathstroke, and Deadpool. I have to admit I'm not the biggest Spawn fan, but the design coupled with the spiked frame looks really cool.
The next one is based on the Lord of the Rings, and I kind of want to frame a bigger version of it and hang it up in my place. The emblem designer's style compliments the simple design perfectly. Big props to Reddit user WhoDaresNguyens (opens in new tab).
Reddit user MelodicFacade (opens in new tab) also got artistic with their minimalist recreation of Vincent van Gogh's The Starry Knight. This one in particular makes me want to see what I can do with the emblem designer.
Reddit user Tox1cFire (opens in new tab) created four different emblems that will let anyone show their web browser pride in the midst of battle. Are you an Internet Explorer user, sick and tired of everyone making fun of you? Wear it on your shield and run headfirst into battle!
The next two emblems are musically focused, with Reddit user Echolog (opens in new tab)'s Dark Side of the Moon recreation and Artoxz (opens in new tab)'s Wu-Tang Clan logo. I can't think of two bands with more wildly different styles than Pink Floyd and the Wu-Tang Clan, but I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't want both of these designers on my team.
And finally, I thought I'd end with a couple emblems that are based on some of our favourite games. The first is of another game that features excellent combat. While the Dark Side of the Moon is cool, the only thing this emblem wants to praise is the sun. Reddit user Jesterdevo (opens in new tab) obviously took some inspiration from Dark Souls, and we couldn't be happier about it. Thanks, Jesterdevo.
The second is based on Portal, and SalaComMander (opens in new tab) made sure to follow the rules of the game and has the companion cube's corner coming going through the bottom portal and coming out the top one. Excellent.
For Honor received a score of 74 in PC Gamer's review (opens in new tab) for being an unwelcoming experience to newcomers.
"Stick with it, though, and you’ll find a rich, tactical fighting game with wonderfully weighty combat and hidden depths to uncover," PC Gamer's Andy Kelly said. "But if you want something accessible you can easily dip in and out of, you may want to swear fealty to another lord."
